I just learned of Terri's passing. She was one of our Delta billing / enrollment reps so I never met her in person. She was always so kind, patient, and helpful. Prayers for the family and all who cared about her.

We just learned of Terri 's passing and are so sad. She was our Delta rep for years and such a sweet person to talk to. So helpful and kind. We never met in person but I felt like we were old friends. I will miss chatting with her and am praying for all of your family.

Terri was my Delta rep and she helped me with questions, billing and generally I enjoyed chatting with her. I knew I could depend on her to help me. She will be greatly missed. Sending prayers to her family and colleagues.

I dont know how I can do life without you. Im completely broken. I miss you more than I ever thought possible. I keep waiting for you to pop out of a room, and say gotcha! You were my world. Thank you for loving me, and showing me how to be a kind, compassionate, and loving person. Thank you for all of the tremendous memories. Thank you for being you. There was only ever one like you, and the world suffered a tremendous loss. Your vibrancy, and light touched everyone you came in contact with. I love you, llama. I love you so much.

My heart is broken and aches so much. We shared so many memories together...camping, sitting around the campfire watching our kids play, talking for what seemed forever on the phone ... you were a good listener and the best Hugger. I already miss your smile and the 'I Love You' at the end of our calls. I have a VMail from Jan 31st on my phone that I keep listening to over & over just to hear your voice one more time. I'm so happy you are pain free, enjoying your time with Jesus and having your "coffee with mom" again...but my heart wants to yell and scream "Get back down here because I still need you". God had a plan for your life and He knows that His ways are not our ways & what is best for each of us. Keep my room tidy until we see each other again. I Love You Forever and ever.

Cindy Holloway Mar 7 2021 12:00 AM

Matthew, I am so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you and your family in the days ahead. And my deepest sympathy.

Cheryl Dossett Mar 6 2021 12:00 AM

Our hearts are broken & we will miss you & your kindness, caring, loving, giving & your smile. See you on the other side
